I have never had a favorite color. Just favorite shades of a color. While I am known to say I’m not much of a “blue person,” I happen to have a turquoise bedroom at my parents’ house and love deeper shades of blue. The same goes for all other colors of the rainbow. There is at least one shade of every color that I absolutely love. And that changes frequently.
I have been really into yellows for a while now, but am especially inspired by all the sunflowers being sold at the outdoor markets right now in the city. Its that end-of-summer reminder and pre-fall treat that wraps a warm summer up into a beautiful little, or shall I say large, bundle! Yellow is very versatile and can be used as a bright accent color or as a neutral to ground a space and add warmth.
Here’s some sunflower yellow inspiration to transition your home into the fall. Might I also suggest a fresh bouquet for your kitchen table. Never underestimate the power of fresh flowers in your home! It will make you smile, I swear.
1. KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixers in Buttercup | $349.00 on Amazon | I’m a big fan of colored appliances, and think that there’s just no reason to get a black or white mixer when you have such beautiful colors to choose from such as this, Buttercup. Lets celebrate our appliances, rather than hide them!
2 . Sydney Hale Clementine & Clove Candle | $28.00 at Sydney Hale Co. |I just discovered Sydney Hale Co. and just love their candles! Not only do they smell delicious, but they are also eco-friendly and leave you with a beautiful amber glass to use when finished.
3 . STOCKHOLM Glass-door cabinet | $399.00 at IKEA | I’ve been in love with this cabinet ever since the first time I saw it at the Ikea store. It is both elegant and bold with just enough color to liven up a room and show off whatever it is you like.
4 . Faribault Wool Pillow Cover | West Elm | This subtle pillow is a great way to infuse a little bit of yellow into your home, without going too crazy. Yellow and gray are a timeless color combo that would be a great addition to any space!
5. Harriet Yellow Rug | $29.95 – $89.95 at Crate & Barrel | This plush yellow rug is absolutely perfect for adding warmth to your home this fall. Because the color is rather subdued, it can actually be used as if it were a neutral and could fit in with just about any color scheme.
6. Threshold™ Stoneware Canister with Lid | $11.99 at Target | Add a fantastic homey and personal touch to your kitchen! I actually bought this canister along with two others for a friend’s bridal shower. I filled them with different treats and wrote a little poem to go along with it!
7. Chunky Tassel Throw | West Elm | This is another cozy favorite of mine. Reminding me of a big comfy sweater, this blanket is much needed addition for the upcoming months.
8 . Urban Outfitters, Reversible Kaleidoscope Quilt | $149.00-$159.00 at Urban Outfitters |This graphic, and yet classic, quilt is an absolutely beautiful way to welcome the fall and change up your bedroom decor. It is also reversible, making it double as useful, especially if you’re someone like me who enjoys changing it up!
Oh yeah! And by the way, Happy October everyone! It’s feeling like full-on fall over here in Sweden… Bring it on cozy blankets and warm scarves. :)
